Abstract

This paper introduces the concept of probe numbers optimization required to plot the Voltage Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR) curve. VSWR curve formation method is used to find the antenna-plasma coupling impedance. VSWR curve can be found using the fixed probe method. The fixed probes will pick up the voltage from the transmission line which in turn will give the idea about VSWR and it will determine the antenna-plasma coupling impedance. In order to optimize the number of probes to be placed on the transmission line, their separation and the length in terms of wavelength on which the probes are to be installed, a simulation work has been done. In this simulation number of probes, separation between them and the length of the transmission line in terms of wavelength over which these probes are to be installed has been optimized with reference to a certain error. The acceptable error limit has been set as input. This paper will show the LabVIEW implementation to optimize the probe numbers, electrical length of transmission line and probe separation.
